China’s first electromagnetic monitoring experimental satellite, “Zhang Heng No.1,” was launched at the Jiuquan Satellite Launch Center. This marked that China has become one of the few countries in the world that has on-orbit high-precision geophysical exploration satellites.
The scientific test satellite named after Zhang Heng will carry out electromagnetic information analysis of the Earth's 7th and China 6th and above earthquakes on the sun-synchronous track with a height of about 500 kilometers, and provide seismic mechanism research, space environment monitoring and earth system scientific research. Space-based platforms and new technological means.
"Zhang Heng No。 1" is the first star of China's geophysical exploration satellite program。 Zhao Jian, deputy director of the Department of System Engineering of the Department of National Defense Science and Industry, stated that the successful launch of “Zhang Heng No。 1” was an important milestone for China’s construction of a three-dimensional integrated seismic monitoring system for the sky。
This mission also carried six domestic and foreign microsatellites such as the Juvenile Star One.
